Facebook, Google, and other similar websites, might be blocked by the India Supreme Court if they do not remove the “offensive and inappropriate” content. India is a country with 110 million Internet users.
Facebook, Google, Yahoo, plus other social networks and search engines might be banned in India if they do not remove the “offensive and inappropriate” content. ” You must have a strict control over the content. Otherwise, like China, we might ban these websites” The New Delhi Supreme Court said.
Facebook is currently banned on China and Google pulled it’s search engine from the Chinese market two years ago, because of censorship issues.
India authorities were concerned about the content available on the Internet. Fake photos facing politicians naked also caused some concerns.
India has 110 million Internet users. Last year, statistics showed that 25 million Indians are present on Facebook.
It is estimated that the total number of Internet users in India will grow at 600 million in the next five years.
